This page is aimed at researchers in social sciences and related disciplines who are using or may be interested in using data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children, which is known popularly as "Children of the 90s". ALSPAC recruited more than 14,000 pregnant women with estimated dates of delivery between April 1991 and December 1992. These women, the children arising from the index pregnancy and the women's partners have been followed up since then and detailed data collected throughout childhood.
For information about the cohort and the data available, see the dedicated pages. To acquire data for your own research, read the data access policy and guidance.
A list of publications of interest to social scientists has been compiled from the longer list of ALSPAC publications.
Programmes and presentation materials are available from past ALSPAC Social Science Workshops.
A list has been produced (correct as of May 2008) to give social science researchers a general idea of the type of research currently underway. However, it is not an exhaustive list and new project proposals are received frequently by ALSPAC. If researchers are considering a new research project with ALSPAC it is advisable to approach the ALSPAC Executive (firstname.lastname@example.org) with an outline of your research idea. The Executive will be able to give correct and up-to-date information about whether there is any overlap with existing research.
